Europe | University of Oxford


The University of Oxford is home to more than 700 full-degree undergraduates from European countries. We seek to recruit the most academically gifted students from the continent.

Our students receive an intensive education, including our distinctive tutorials, and are taught by academic leaders in their field. Colleges provide multidisciplinary communities within which students are supported and intellectually challenged, and have the opportunity to meet people from all walks of life and many different countries.

We had a very interesting and informative time. We were pleased to hear about things like the personal statement and teachers' reference which are completely unknown in Denmark and we need all the good advice we can get.

Our activity in your area

The Student Recruitment Team's main activity in Europe is in late April and May, when we embark on our European Tour. This tour aims to provide information, advice and guidance to teachers and college counsellors, students and their parents about opportunities to study at the University of Oxford. Most of our activity is centred around school visits. In each region, a school is invited to host the presentation for other schools and individuals from the local area. In the year 2015/16 we visited 15 countries, 22 cities and 26 schools.
